What is the name of your state? Maryland
I was recently "let go" (their words) from a small title company.
After packing up my desk, I asked if I could view my employee file.
This request was denied.
I wasn't planning on taking the file with me, I just wanted to look through it before I left.
Legally, should I have been permitted to look through my file ?
Thank youWhat is the name of your state?



fairisfair is right,it is legally thier file and you can always request it but they dont have to let you review it ...sucks but its sadly true!! Good luck in your job search!! You have filed for unemployment havent you??

Although there are some states where the employee has the absolute right to review their file, MD is not one of them - at least, not unconditionally. If you are a public employee, you have that right in MD, but if you work for a private employer, it is up to your employer whether or not to permit it.
